What a lovely spot! We loved our short stay here in this beautiful inn in a wonderful historic town. Our room was the twin bed main floor room in the cooperage and we were fine with it. It has a very good bathroom and nice amenities. Guests are treated to wine or lemon-aide in the beautiful back garden - a... More

This has to be the highlight of my trip and by far the VERY BEST B&B we had the fortune to stay in Shelburn as well as the rest of the loop starting and ending in Halifax. The attention to detail by Pat & David is amazing and there are tiny personal touches to be found all over the inn.... More

Oh ,from the greeting and tour of the building to settling us in our room we felt like we were home. The bed was so comfortable and the whole garden area was very relaxing. We slept with the windows wide open and we never heard a sound all night. The breakfast was made with a lot of local ingredients that... More

Shelburne was a stop along our maritime holiday. We travelled for 2 ½ weeks staying at different points along the South Shore and were attracted by the location and reviews of Coppers Inn. They have a lovely garden with peonies that were planted over a hundred years ago, beautiful poppies, and an herb garden. The coopery across the street opens... More

In life the time it takes to stop and smell the flowers is often the most rewarding. Thank you for taking the time to visit ours. It is always a pleasure to share their beauty with friends...old and new. More

We booked here because we wanted to visit the new Black Loyalist center recently opened in nearby Birchtown. We had a very comfy room, the proprietors were great folks and we met some wonderful fellow travelers. We sat out on the lovely patio and drank wine and laughed and talked for several hours! Breakfast the next morning was a wee... More

Recently stayed at this beautiful historic inn.. Fabulous views of the harbour! Extremely well cared for/managed inn with complete amenities. A must place to stay in Nova Scotia.. The room we rented was like living in an apartment - very quiet and well appointed. Wine was served to all the guests the day we arrived which gave all of us... More

Cooper's Inn is located at a beautiful spot right on the water in the quiet town of Shelburne. Not only was the proprietor, Pat, very welcoming, but she cooks up a great breakfast for her guests and obviously enjoys doing so. She also provided good recommendations for dining at other places in town. One of the nicest parts of staying... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. This B&B is well cared for, clean and quiet. Located right on the water on the quiet end of Dock Street. We were very happy with everything. Up-to-date utilities, TV, fixtures. Warm and cozy when the weather was unseasonably cold. Great breakfast! Highly recommended.

Beautiful house, very old but very nicely decorated, clean and historic. Stayed in a room with two single beds. Room had everything we needed and more. Coffee maker in the room. Very private room. Very close to all the local attractions in the town.

Many of the venues in the historic district of Shelburne are mere minutes from Cooper's Inn. Your good memories are our reward. Thank you! More
